We wanted a test phase for geodns to see how it works. This has passed
and thus I now disabled the box, should be visible on the pages within
the next few hours - hopefully the dependencies are set properly so that
the pages also get rebuilt. :) Keeping the bug open for now as pending.

It couldn't show the chosen server because that would require different
try to avoid, and it wouldn't gain much. :)
Thanks for your patience.
